If you have shopped for a traditional bathroom vanity before, you know that some accessories like bathroom faucets are not part of the package. Whilst buying a complete vanity set will cost a lot of money, it is easier getting cheaper deals on faucets and still has a chic looking vanity at the end. Here are some tips to start you off.
Begin by deciding what color you want on the faucets. This is primarily determined by the color of the vanity itself. In many cases, the countertop works as the break between the vanity and the faucet itself, having a color that separates the two. You can choose the countertop accentuates a color that matches the base vanity or that.
Then there is the material your bathroom faucets should be made in. If the bronze piece coming with the vanity set is quite expensive, there are plenty of other options from only home décor websites. You can choose to have faucets in chrome, brushed nickel or Mediterranean bronze. You only need to look beyond the website that’s offering you a traditional bathroom vanity set to get a better deal on bathroom faucets.
Thirdly, decide how much you want to purchase the faucets for. A little ‘window-shopping’ through different website will give you a rough estimate on what a faucet should cost. Then find out if you will be required to pay for your own shipment, as this will also add up to the cost. it will also pay if you could get some discounts on the items you are about to buy; even if it’s not advertised on the website, try and ask for a price slash on the items you are about to buy.
Another tip about purchase is ensuring you are getting the item from a website that accepts returns or refunds. This helps when the item shipped to your doorstep is not what you were looking for. Additionally, find out if the shipment is fully insured by the site itself as this gives some guarantee your item will arrive in mint condition.
For those bathroom faucets that need extra fixtures, make sure you buy them in advance and have them shipped together. If they can be found locally, that’s better. Don’t buy a faucet that cannot be easily fixed by simple plumbing or whose accessories are not in any local hardware store.
If it’s impossible to buy a full bathroom vanity set from one website, you can always source for the bathroom faucets from other markets. Just use the above tips to help make the right decision.
